Ann Taylor’’s start in the event business was a much more personal experience that evolved into a family passion for weddings and events. After assisting in the planning of both of her daughters’ weddings, she and her daughter Amy, saw a niche for a personalized service with fashion forward, high quality, rental products. In 2010 they started “A Chair Affair, Inc.” strictly offering every color and style of the well renowned Chiavari Chair, also known as “the wedding chair.” It has since emerged into a full line of trend setting rental products, from mismatched vintage china, to church pews, to traditional and rustic farm tables, elegant chargers, glassware, catering accessories, bar and barware and many eclectic décor for inside and out.
